Three New Mexico Sketches by Frederick Frahm inspired by regional scenery:
By the Rio Grande at Dawn
In Chaco Canyon at Noon
Dusk on the Plains of St. Agustin
Composed in 2010 for largely manuals only, and easy pedals. The triptych forms a musical day descriptive of the Northern New Mexico desert landscape. The flowing river waters of the Rio Grande, the heat and serenity of the Chaco Canyon ruins, and the eery atmosphere of the Very Large Array as it commands the St. Agustin valley all find musical expression in this colorful work.
